From the Producer of the Office and Director Graham Linehan
Version 3.0 has finally arrived, and your most urgent IT Department queries can now be answered: Will Jen s builder urinate in all her sinks? Why is Moss speaking like a manly football fan? How did Roy end up living on the street? Who is Reynholm s new Employee Of The Month? Can anyone stop the horror of Friendface? Should a charity calendar ever feature topless nerds? Have you tried turning it off and on again? Chris O Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry star in this all-new season of the Emmy winning IFC hit from writer/director Graham Linehan (FATHER TED) and executive producer Ash Atalla (THE OFFICE). THE IT CROWD proves, says Wired, that nothing beats funny walks or electroshock-therapy pants when it comes to getting a big-ass belly laugh!

This was recommended to me by a friend who claimed it was not just funny, but at times outrageous. At the time I bought this, Series 2 was also released, so i purchased both.
What a wise move.
The show is not as outrageous as was told, but is pure fun. I am still laughing at one joke, where the female boss of the IT department in a meeting of higher-ups claims that 'If you type Google within the Google site, you will break the internet'. Ok, is not as funny in print, but seeing it made my sides split.
Ross is my favorite. He is so hysterical, and what comes out of his mouth is so endearing, and all else that happens to the 3 employees of a business that has yet to say what they do believe it or not makes a classic tv show. Not offensive, and yet at times a little risque, you sense to be part of a family who work leisurely among those who think they know everything, but when it comes to computers, are clueless. It gives a new meaning to 'Is your computer turned on?'.
Love this show!
Canned laughter is a negative and some of the humor goes too far into zany territory for my taste, but the cast and writing of The IT Crowd are great fun. I watched all three seasons on Netflix before getting this one to share with friends and family. I'm an IT guy so I expected this show to be a lot of un-funny pandering (think The Big Bang Theory), but I was impressed and recommend this to fans of British comedy. You don't have to be a geek to get the jokes, but it probably helps.
The show reminds me of Fawlty Towers.
If the DVD doesn't work than you should try turning it of and then on again and checking to see if your TV and DVD player are plugged in.

The IT Crowd feels as though it keeps up with current times (essential I suppose for a series where technology features highly) and it reflects on modern life by including such things as social networking websites and the recent trend for nude charity calendars. It might feel a bit naff at times but it is peppered with moments of pure brilliance, for example; Moss pinning Roy to a garage door as he kisses him (twice!), the prank on Jen involving the entire internet in a box, and of course Douglas' two-word outburst to a group of religious figures (currently my text message alert tone).
Noel Fielding is absent from this series so unfortunately there's no Richmond, but Matt Berry gets more screentime as Douglas becomes a bigger role. Berry's delivery has been utilised for comedy in the past and it's used well here, throwaway phrases become laugh-out-loud moments as he powers out an obscenity or strangely pronounced syllable - all adding to a strange yet weirdly likable character.
By now the IT Crowd is well aware that Moss and his `Moss-isms' provided some of the golden moments of the last few series and we are treated to more to add to the collection. Not only is the series aware of this but it actually acknowledges it when Roy makes a comment about "another classic" Moss line - the creators of the IT Crowd know that there's a fan base out there and it's great that they play to it. Despite this though, the series is accesable to anyone, you don't have to have watched the previous two series to enjoy this, but if you already like the characters then it does add to the experience.
This DVD follows the trend of the previous series and the menus are presented in a `techie' way - in this case a Facebook (or should be 'FriendFace'?) style web page. And if you leave the main menu on for a few minutes you're treated to an Easter Egg (a hidden DVD feature for the less geeky out there!).
In a nutshell: The basic premise remains the same; Roy and Moss are IT support guys in the basement along with their technophobic boss Jen, and between them they find themselves in a variety of outlandish situations. This time round there's more of a focus on the actual characters rather than visual gags, but this is the third series and you expect to see more depth to the characters. This is a quirky series with genuinely laugh-out-loud moments which don't depreciate; the re-watch value of the IT Crowd means that it keeps making you laugh no matter how many times you view it, if anything - it gets better the more you play it.
I just wanted to say to not hesitate with a purchase of series 3 as somehow instead of going downhill this series has reached incredible new highs and I haven't laughed so hard in a long time while watching this.
Series 3 is full of amazingly funny moments, moments that seem to happen a lot more frequently now than before; take Series 1 where I only recall the "disembodied head effect" scene but Series 3 is full of incredible scenes. Let's hope there is more goodness to come.
Over here across the Atlantic, there was a thankfully aborted attempt to transplant the show, dropping at least Pansy Parkinson, who, I think, is a consistently brilliant comedienne. Her deadpan and timing are flawless. British comedy is best done by Brits. And Irish. And Scots. Ok, and anybody who was brought up with British weather and boiled food. Or whatever the secret is.
The standout episodes, if there had to be any, were "Friendface", "The Speech" (In which the guys convince Jen that a black box with a red light they've thrown together IS The Internet) and "Calendar Geeks", but, again, it was solid season all around. Thanks Graham Linehan.
